Review: Custom Cranium /

This little guy is Florian from Custom Cranium ( and was everything I'd hoped he would be from the pictures in the listing!

As the description said, " Fluffiest Snuff Stuffy EVAR!" I got quite a deal considering this item was handmade with recycled stuffed animal body and professionally prepared animal skull and tail. Not to mention, the custom etched shot glass with a drawing of Florian and the shop name that was an extra little gift from this seller. Everything was sent via Priority mail and packaged with lots of padding around the dolls head and shotglass. You can tell this seller takes great strides to send everything so that it arrives flawless and in a timely manner.

I have since been back for more and definitely will again!

DIYScene Team September Swap - Pt.2

I received a nice little surprise from Canada this afternoon, my secret swap package!

I didn't recognize the real name of the sender of course, in this day and age of usernames, but I opened to find it was from Daddysgirl/GlamGrenade! Here's what I found inside:

A red hand stamped bat scarf, pumpkin bell earrings, candy, toy bones, spider clutch purse with a big fat spider on it(!), skull fabric, art cover mini notebook, witch finger puppet, a Frankenstein & bats scrapbooking pieces!

The scarf is quite warm and snuggly, made of a sweatshirt type material but without the fuzz. Great for people like me who want to sneeze every time they pull a sweatshirt over their head. The clutch will hold all my makeup and then some. It also has a strap that I can clip on and off, put my keys on and generally keep me from losing my purse! Excellent.

Check out her shop for similar scarves & clutch purses you won't be disappointed.

DIYScene Team September Swap

It was a Halloween theme! I couldn't pass that up.

Here is my completed rendering Pet Zombie Creations painting Crying Jealousy in fabric on a 14" wide tote (all from scratch!) with a couple of my Postcards, a Charm, an Autumn Black Rose, a couple Moocards and a wooden coffin full of candy.

As you can see I decided to do something a little different. I was itching to do another fabric portrait and found this to be a perfect opportunity! I thought PZC's painting would be perfect with it's undead, zombie-like feel for the Halloween theme. The colors were chosen not only to compliment the image but pink, purple and black (in that order ;D) are her favorite colors. Voila, PZ's gotta brand new bag.

Ok it wasn't as simple as I make it out to be. You can get a glimpse of my madness in my in-progress pics on my Flickr photostream.

Review: The Poisoned Apple /

What a spooktacular purchase, a custom doll from The Poisoned Apple (!

This doll was custom designed from a couple of pictures and written descriptions. It only took a week to create, which is exactly what I was told by the seller when I placed the order. Shipping was quick and the doll was so well packaged I had to wrestle it out of all the bubble wrap! In my opinion she doesn't charge nearly enough for these hand painted and hand sewn creations. It is exactly what I wanted and I will definitely be buying from her again!
